We arrived at Federal Crest around 4:00 in the afternoon just as the sun was shining through the large beveled windows on the stair landing across from the foyer causing prismatic rainbows to float across the room. What an entry! The whole house was magnificent and well appointed without seeming cluttered. We loved our room, The Blue Spruce, with it's canopied bed and luxurious jetted tub. With the adjoining porch/room including a pull-out sofa, it worked perfectly for our daughter who was with us as we joined her for the last weekend of her on-site classes with the Liberty Online Master's program. Phil and Ann were gracious hosts and we loved getting to know them. They were so accommodating, even to the extent of serving an early breakfast for our daughter and a later one for us. It was a feast for both the eyes and palette. Definitely up there as one of our favorite B&B's!
